And she feels she has learned from the best. Teacher Jessie Case is someone she admires and finds that admiration bolsters her professional as well as personal life.

“She is the perfect teacher,” Luther said. “Her love for the kids is amazing and she’s a true friend.”

It hasn’t always been easy.

“COVID-19 was hard on us all,” Luther said. “The kids struggled and are still struggling because of it.”

However, Luther has high hopes for the children under her care.

“I love what I do and will continue as a K-5 assistant as long as I can.”

She said she was “so honored” to be chosen by the community as an A+mazing Teacher.

“Thank you to those who nominated me,” she said. “A special thanks to those who voted.”
